Sunday Money Roundup – Showing The Apartment Edition.

Things are getting interesting around here – now that we told our landlord we are moving out on June 30th, she has already started showing our place to potential renters! This neighborhood is one of the most sought-after areas to live in around here, as who doesn’t want to live a block from the ocean? Anyway, we have to keep tidying up and having people come through our apartment and it feels like I am showing my house to buyers. Very strange. On to the roundup…

Here are the carnivals that My Two Dollars took part in this past week:

    Make sure to hide any prescription drugs you may have. Many potential tenants will actually look in your medicine cabinet & steal them while you’re not looking. Some people will do anything, including posing as a tenant, to get what they want.

    I felt the same way when my real estate agent first told me about this kind of thing happening (it occurs when selling a home too). Then I had a party at my house one time and a friend of a friend actually stole some of my husband’s post shoulder surgery pain meds, right out of our guest bathroom! I’ve been on a mission since to let people know – this really does happen!
